Friday, October 01, 2021, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM EST
Category: CE Events: Adult Individuals

Would you like practical tools to help kids harness their natural potential, reduce stress and get things done with less arguing and more cooperation? Whether it’s academics, social challenges, mental health issues or technology, many children and teens struggle with feeling overwhelmed and can’t seem to keep up, especially those young people with ADHD, high-functioning ASD, twice exceptional profiles (2E) or learning disabilities. You’ll learn how to navigate their complex mix of biology, behavior and emotion, strengthen essential executive functioning skills to improve both home and school experiences and foster self-reliant, connected independence. With current research on the developing brain and real-life case examples, Dr. Saline shows you why executive functioning skills are critical to learning and development and how stress and anxiety negatively impact them. You will learn innovative tools to improve focus, organization, planning and motivation. Issues related to ‘launching’ neurodiverse students, managing risky behaviors and dealing with screen dependence will also be covered. Throughout the training, attendees will participate in exercises designed to improve their understanding of kids who live with attention, learning and processing differences and gain techniques for how to assist children, teens and families with these issues.
